  • A place where you can get a change from the typical Colombian fare. My husband had the burger he was craving and I had an excellent chicken sandwich with cheese, lettuce and tomato. Very nicely prepar...  more »
  • Not sure what the rave reviews were about. All of our meals (4) were overcooked and dry (fish and chicken). Service was extremely friendly, however.  more »
  • The breakfasts are delicious and taking into account the quantity and quality the price is very affordable. As for the rest of the Charter, they have lots of variety and the hamburgers are very rich, I do not recommend the pasta Bolognese is not good. The attention is very good, the place is very cute and have with games, also have attention to the tourist and that is staying in the hostel the Floresta have a discount on them lunch travelers and them breakfast. In general is a very good place.

  • I went there for the first time in may and had an amazing experience and the service was excellent and the food was delicious.. i returned 4 months later and was able to enjoy more delicious food and learn how to play tejo had an amazing time!
  • Great new hotel! With nice restaurant! Hotel is managed by two brothers who sprak fluent English. They can help with al information and trips/hikes you want.. Book it you won't be disappointed!
  • What do steel projectiles, screaming men, explosives and ludicrous amounts of beer have in common? Tejo, the national sport of Colombia, of course! We were recommended by our hotel to learn how to play tejo here, and were not disappointed! This family run business (a mom and two sons) was super friendly and patient in teaching us the game, and chatting with us about life in Salento and their experiences living in Texas (random!). While we're nowhere near experts, we can now say we've set off explosions in Colombia!
  • Great place. We learned how to play Tejos there.
  • Order the grilled trucha, best dish we had in Colombia!
